In 2007, Love & Art Children’s Foundation partnered with the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund to bring an art workshop to a group of underprivileged children in Los Angeles.

For more than six months, Love & Art worked with 24 children, (ages 6 to 13) from Hollygrove EMQ, a children and family services agency in Los Angeles that provides at-risk children with vital mental health services and enrichment programs.

"Believe me. an hour dedicated to a child brings one more happiness than a month of Sundays
and will make their lives more meaningful, as it has mine."
Audrey Hepburn

The resulting collection, entitled Enchanted... was created one day at a time,
one child at a time. The individual support and encouragement helped inspire the children to explore their innate artistic talents and to better understand themselves through non-threatening creative expression.

The Enchanted... collection was exhibited at Christie’s Los Angeles in September 2008.

On October 2, 2008, the Enchanted... artwork was auctioned during an dinner event celebrating the collection at Paramount Pictures . The art auction was conducted by Christie's.

Over $250,000 was raised from the Enchanted art auction. All of the auction proceeds went directly to Hollygrove to enhance and support its art therapy and enrichment programs for at-risk children in Los Angeles.
